Inometa presents INOflex pneumatic carbon fiber reinforced plastic bridge adapter.

Pressure drops and insufficient ink transfers at speeds in excess of 200 m/min are now a thing of the past. With the introduction of the new pneumatic carbon bridge adapter, the roller and lightweight design specialist from Herford, Inometa, has provided the flexo-market with a system that is suitable as an alternative to the cost-intensive hydraulic clamping system for many print shops and machine manufacturers. Independent application tests have demonstrated the performance capabilities and the print quality that can be achieved through the utilization of the adapter made of carbon fiber.

It is important to be able to respond flexibly to customer demands. The printing industry recognized this development at an early point in time. Small print runs, short set-up and flexible response times are important factors when competing in an environment with high cost and competitive pressures. This new development is also founded on the high level of expertise in the processing of CFRP, andthe company has been able to accrue as a development partner of the printing industry: application-related and practical improvements such as a special sealing system which provides an improved assembly performance for the operator, an integrated and customized damping system for the reduction of unwanted vibrations in the printing unit, and the use of a CFRP base core all significantly contribute to the consistently high printing quality that is attainable even at high speeds.
